Coleman had this to say about the inspiration for his new single, “Initially I wrote this song for myself. It was an attempt to articulate my emotions, but now I think I owe it to anyone else going through a similar situation to release it into the world. Hopefully it will help validate the feelings of others and give them a new perspective.”
Coleman Hell’s rise to success has been an exciting one to watch. His debut LP Summerland achieved gold status, spawned two multi-platinum singles and earned him several Juno nominations. His breakthrough single “2 Heads” was the most played song on Canadian radio in 2016. It went 4x Platinum in Canada, Gold in the US, and has exceeded over 100 million streams on Spotify.
Despite all of these achievements, Coleman found himself dealing with the same depression and anxiety that plagued most of his youth and adult life. He entered 2017 feeling empty and ultimately unfulfilled.
“I spent half that year in bed.”
After realizing he needed help, he started going to therapy, withdrew himself from social media and spent the next 6 months working on himself. ‘Manic’ is meant to be a realistic snapshot of how it feels to be affected by mental illness.
“I want to help destigmatize these issues and let everyone else who is suffering out there know that they’re not alone.”
Coleman is currently working on new music.
